Since Fabi was born in Miami, Florida, you might want to play something by Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.  Or since he grew up and became a master in New York, you might try something

better not.

I think you didn't even finish the last sentence, which made me easier to ignore it

Here's Fabi, being interviewed by DeadSpin 

What was behind the decision to move to Europe [when you were 12]?

That was my parents’ decision entirely. I wanted to stay in the U.S. [laughs] I had friends in the U.S. and my family was there and my home was there, but my parents wanted to visit Europe and explore a few countries for a few years, and it ended up being pretty much a decade that we were in Europe. The idea was to pursue chess professionally, and that’s what I did. I started working pretty much all day, working with coaches in Spain and Hungary and Switzerland. We travelled Europe for about 10 years, and I pretty much played chess non-stop. I would play 100 games a year or something, for 10 years. And I went from a decent, talented kid level, to pretty much a strong Grandmaster level by the time I came back.

And what was behind that decision to come back to the U.S. [in 2015]?

I just wanted to come back at that point. The U.S. has always felt like home, so I wanted to come back, and it felt like after 10 years and more financial security—by the time I left Europe I was supporting myself and could live on my own—it was time to come back.

My Parents made me!

My Parents couldn't stop me!

But Florida belonged to Spain for almost three centuries, so Fabiano Caruana, who was born in Miami, is actually Spanish. Just like Capablanca.

That L stands for loser. Do you know Luigi punches the mirror at the bathroom every morning? Why didn't you put a pic of Mario instead?

Because Luigi is Italian, like Caruana

I did not see an active or well-populated club for Caruana so I created a new one - Fabiano Caruana Chess Club. Figured any man challenging the world champion deserves one.

Join if you’re interested! Looking to be active in the club match circuit.
